NSF has released the Request for Proposal (RFP) for the FY18 Research Infrastructure Improvement Track-2 Focused EPSCoR Collaborations (RII T2 FEC) program. RII Track-2 FEC builds interjurisdictional collaborative teams of EPSCoR investigators in scientific focus areas consistent with NSF priorities. Projects are investigator-driven and must include researchers from at least two RII-eligible jurisdictions with complementary expertise and resources necessary to tackle those projects, which neither party could address as well or rapidly alone. The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) research and education activities should seek to broaden participation through the strategic inclusion and integration of different types of individuals,…

The South Dakota Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (SD EPSCoR) has lauched a free database of curriculum enhancement resources for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) teachers serving middle and high school students. The education portal, located at sdepscor.org/edportal, offers curriculum modules based on current scientific research occurring in South Dakota’s higher education institutions and are aligned with the new South Dakota Science Standards. “We know how busy teachers are”, said Dr. Rhea Waldman, Education Outreach Specialist with SD EPSCoR. “Our education portal will help teachers get students excited about STEM and transition them to the new South Dakota Science…

The Pythagorean theorem is an important math concept that is applied everywhere in math and technology. The idea is simple in that a2 + b2 = c2 for a right angle triangle that has two sides, a and b, and a hypotenuse of c. There are many proofs proving this is true using squares, trapezoids, and other triangles that can be found here. But with all these math ideas and concepts, how are kids really grasping the idea that two sides of a triangle squared added together always equal the longer side squared? For the children that have more visual needs for…
